Save old brushes!
Murphy's Oil Soap with stiff brushes soaking in it
I know we've all done it....Left our acrylic brushes with paint on them, and then come back the next day only to discover them totally brittle and hard! Did you know that you can still revive them? Yes, you can! Just stand them in a bottle of Murphy's Oil Soap for about a week. Then, rinse them off, and it's a miracle! They are soft as a baby's bottom once again! Yes, it's magic!
